Another fish kill on the Pamlico River was reported Friday afternoon, closely following a Labor Day fish kill on the south side of the Pamlico, from Durham Creek to Blounts Bay. This one is located at Summer Haven, on the north side of the river just west of Broad Creek, and includes dead spot, flounder and crab.
We have reported the fish kill to North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality.
Algal blooms can be toxic, and not only to fish. Avoid recreating in any water that is discolored, odorous or where dead fish are found — and that goes for your pets too!
